enbyphoria!


Recommended Posts

This is a thread to view and share sources of nonbinary euphoria. 

 

This weekend, my husband told me about actor Emma Corrin (they/them) who recently came out as trans nonbinary. Looking at photos of them on Instagram brought me to tears of joy. I am grateful for their authenticity and visibility. I believe the enbyphoria I experienced was part Emma & part my husband, who has come a massively long way in accepting and supporting me.

Yay, @VidanjaliI love this thread already. Thanks for starting it. I've never heard that word before: Enbyphoria. It's almost got a song in one word. Like the song, "Maria" from West-Side Story. "I've just met a girl named Enbyphoria. And suddenly that name Will never be the same To me! Enbyphoria!"  OK, it does need an orchestra and choreograhy, but it's still cool. Enbyphoria should attract lots of stories and songs and photos like tthose above. I'll see you again.

This thread is awesome, I'm going to see if I can find anything to contribute.  I love it when there is validation in the public eye for non-binary folks.

 

Oh, and enbyphoria is a new one on me as well, any day you learn new something is a good day, so thank you.

 

All the best,

Lol, @Davie more like "I've just met a gender-nonspecific person named enbyphoria" 😁 I'm sure Bernstein could have accommodated all those syllables somehow... someday... somewhere... 😏

 

I may have coined the term "enbyphoria". Just popped into my head. But who knows - there's nothing new under the sun.

Yep. Twitter search turned up only 1 defunct tweeter, probably a typo. It'll be word of the year in 2023. We're going to have our own driverless car! Humor will be our superpwer!

Last night, I was at the dog park & chatting with a new comer. A nice guy. The conversation turned to "you just never know what life has in store". I wound up sharing a brief timeline of things I've struggled with in my life - homelessness, poverty, chronic illness, etc. (nothing about queerness) - and my life's unexpected turns. I commented that sometimes, one never knows what strength they can potentially muster unless they're faced with a challenge. And often, we can be resentful of having to be so strong, but what is the alternative? He shared some of his own struggles which he surmounted & another story which was inspiring. 

 

Anyways, he was unexpectedly very encouraging and validating which was nice. At one point he said, "you are an impressive lady." There was this slow-motion split second where I thought: suck it up, or say something...heck,why not say something. I just smiled and said: I prefer "person" over "lady". He hesitated for a moment. Maybe he had his own internal slow-motion split second debate. He then nodded and said yeah, okay. Then, later in our conversation he correctly referred to me as a person without making any big deal about it. 

 

It felt great. I'm finding that sometimes there are simple ways to affirm yourself which don't entail coming out or any major explanation or need to make oneself so vulnerable - like "I prefer this over that." If someone wants to argue with something you've expressed as your "preference", even though you know your identity is deeper than that, then one might point out the absurdity. For example, imagine if you met someone and said, "call me James", and the other person said, "you seem more like a Jimmy. I'll call you Jimmy". They would cleary only be demonstrating their own egotism. It's not a perfect analogy, but that's the spirit of the idea.

I don't know when you're going to bed. But I'm pretty tired tonight, so I may be enbyphoria.

Non-Binarily

 

Don’t shame dysphoria.
Hate me, non-binarily.
It’s diversity for idiots,
inclusion for crazies,
your proof of mania,
laziness whomever
poem to clueless,
or foreverness
to end a time.
I love you.

A long lost friend recently reached out to me. The other day we caught up on the phone for 2 1/2 hours. I told her I'm trans nonbinary. Her response: Don't take this the wrong way (me: curious - what ever might she imagine I'd take the wrong way), but that does not surprise me at all. I laughed and said I take that exactly the right way - I find the fact you're not surprised very affirming. She went on to say she always felt there was something different and special about me, but couldn't put her finger on it. She said, you were just you, my friend. Love!

      See at this point idk what’s real feelings and what’s my ocd getting to me. I can say I found out I have feelings for my coworker who is a guy(amab and straight). When I think of him and wanting to be happy… it brings me to tears

      Sorry to hear that.  Take some allergy meds.   I had the same experience when my brothers and I were cleaning out our father's house.  He hadn't cleaned since his wife died 9 years earlier.  This was long before covid so I didn't have a mask handy.  Fortunately, his neighbour was a nurse and gave me a mask to wear.  Definitely mask up if you have to go back there.

      Well, just when I thought I'd turned a corner....the bus hits me.   I've been working with an aging aunt and uncle for almost two years. My uncle was in memory care nursing and passed away last October. My aunt was in and out of the hospital, rehab and her apartment for most of that time. I finally convinced her that she needed to be in skilled nursing and moved her to a facility close to us.   Since then I've been working to get her apartment cleared, cleaned and transition her to Medicaid.    I've spent the last two days at her apartment - a 1.5 hour drive each way - having it cleared and then cleaning it. SHe just wasn't able to clean for herself and the apartment was filled with dust and grime. Last night, after breathing it all in all dal I think I set off an allergy and I have been sick as a dog. Sore throat, congestion, tired, I've slept almost all day and, as my wife has told me several times, I look like hell.   This is really the first I've sat with my Surface all day...and I'm in bed.   Tuesday, I drive back down to have the final inspection and turn in the keys.   Our puppy is now 14 weeks and almost 30 pounds. She had a vet visit on Thursday for her distemper booster and the vet said she is "perfect." She's totally house trained and on her way out of the Velociraptor phase. What a doll she is.   Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!!

      This is such wonderful news for you both from being able to start on testosterone and for your parents hearing and supporting you. Good luck and keep in touch!! We're here if you need us.

      That is an awesome shirt @Ivy
    • Mmindy
      That’s fantastic news and just as @Vidanjalipoints out there are two great realizations in your post. Acceptance by your parents and starting HRT soon.    Congratulates and enjoy the ride.   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      My daughter sent me this t-shirt.  So I wore it to our local Pride Picnic.

      Wonderful news, hon.  I'm very happy for you.  You will make great progress very soon.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Glad you are going to a Pride picnic.  I never know in advance what I am going to get to do.  And by the time I do know it’s too late to sign up.  Working is the pits but I am making progress towards being able to quit once and for all, again.  I just don’t know what I’ll be able to do after I’m no longer working because I had to give up all the things I liked to do.   the only way I get a particular day off is to schedule way in advance such as my doctors appointments and church things.  Which reminds me I have some future events I need to put on my need off schedule for October and January.     het @Mmindy just a little play humor there.  Our dog is getting older but as a puppy she was all but housebroken when we picked her up. Just needed to learn a new environment and we had to learn her puppy signals.  We put in an underground fence and she learned to recognize the warning without getting zapped.  When we took her to obedience school she was a quick learner for all but the reason we took her, don’t jump up on people. Learned to Use a bell.  Learned to open lever doors to go out and in.  Still doesn’t like going out in the rain.  Taught us how to interact with her sign language.  And has been a very smart dog.  Her sister is still kept in a cage when no one is home.  Sweetie doesn’t even have one.   best dog ever but will be our last dog when her life ends.  Best to end being dog parents with your best dog.  And yes she is a family member, not a pet.   Willow

      That’s fantastic news! I know this can be such a hard situation, but it sounds as though you dealt with it brilliantly. Congratulations, and much respect to your parents for listening.
    • Vidanjali
      @hormonedifficientin2ways congratulations! Perhaps it's hard to say which is most affirming, getting to start T or having had your parents finally validate you. Two different realms of euphoria. Best wishes.

      That’s fantastic! 🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈🌈   🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      We're having our 2nd annual Pride Picnic today!

      @Willow since my wife and I drink different coffee blends, and the puppy gets me up way earlier than I had become accustomed to in retirement. He and I are up and sharing the morning alone, because the wife still sleeps in.    Parker had the last of his puppy vaccinations and wellness check up yesterday weighing in at 24.2 pounds at 13 weeks old. He’s responding well to training and is mostly potty trained. We’re using the sleigh bell method for marking the door to get outside, and waiting for him to bark at the door before letting him in. He understands not to rush the door or gate when we’re moving through them.    Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋
